I was given the opportunity to review the book The Shifters of 2040 by Ami Rebecca Blackwelder. I was completely blown away. The book was so much more than I expected.
The story is a PNR (Paranormal Romance) and the first book from this author that I have read. The book is aimed for the young adult reader, but the author's mature content enables even the veteran reader to enjoy. Ami Rebecca Blackwelder shows a passion for the characters as well as details to the story that are lost on many "fantasy" stories.
The Shifters of 2040 is not an easy read, but one that will leave you satisfied It is part of a series, but definitely a stand alone as well. I give this book 5 stars.
I was given the opportunity to ask Miss Blackwelder some questions and she was kind enough to respond.
